As many of you know, Extra life is one those events that we look forward to all year. The store will be open for 36 hours; yes I said THIRTY SIX HOURS. If this is your first time out to Extra Life you might want to know how this all works. It’s simple, a quarter get you a re-roll; re-roll as many times as you want because it’s for the kids. Now for Magic it’s going to work a little differently, a quarter gets you a scry, 50 cents gets you a life point and 75 cents get you a land you didn’t have before.
Help us make this event better then last year! Now here’s our Schudule:
With every purchase will be donating 5% to the El Paso Children Hospital this is our way of giving back to the community that has given, so much to us.
Not to be out done, Age of Sigmar is getting a new starter box on 24 June called “Thunder and Blood” shortly after the massive launch of Warhammer 40K 8th Edition with the goal of making it a breeze to get into Warhammer Fantasy.
According to the posts and mailer that Games Workshop has been sending out, the kit features:
– 44 stunning citadel miniatures cast in coloured plastic and easy-to-build – 96 pages of rules, background and painting – get involved in the Mortal Realms right away – Play right out of the box with scenery, a playmat and dice. – Amazing value of two full armies for the price of a Start Collecting! box
Not only do you get a ton more models for the price of two Start Collecting boxes, but you also get a playmat, some dice and a sweet book that doesn’t just cover rules; it will also get you started on painting and includes plenty of lore driven goodness for those of us who love the fluff that comes with the Warhammer universe.
On top of the starter box, there are also two new sets of miniatures sold separately that are being released to coincide with Thunder and Blood include:

This is Jason again from Military Gamer Supply. I’m going to jump into my second article geared towards the middle 60 percent of Warhammer 40k players.
This week we’re going to cover the first step in competitive play: defining victory. This article is geared for a fairly wide variety on the competitive spectrum. Some of you are pretty good players, winning the occasional local Rogue Trader Tournament (RTT) or finishing in the top 25% at major events. Others lose 8 out of 10 games or can’t make it to big events.
At this point, I’m going to ask a question: Where do you want to be? Seriously think about it for a little while. Do you want to just win more games? Do you want to smash at every local RTT? Do you want a best in faction for all ITC? Winning locally and winning nationally are two very different roads. If you want to win locally you only have to worry about your game; list composition, strategy, local meta, etc. Playing on a national level brings a whole host of new concerns. Can you make it to enough events? Can you afford to travel? How much does your local meta differ from the national meta?
Until next week, consider where you are now, where you want to go, and how hard of a road you’re willing to travel. If you want to be a competitive player, you’re going to have to think about 40k as more than a game. You’ll have to put real effort into it and not just one day on the weekend.
On a side note, some of my readers asked for threads on strategy and list building. We’ll get there. There are several other considerations to address before list building.
Thanks for reading and let me know if there is anything you want me to cover.
